PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. - On Wednesday, October 18, 2006, the Calvert County Sheriff's Office Warrant Unit participated in the 4th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail. The Family Violence Apprehension Detail is a national event that focuses on arresting persons with outstanding family violence warrants.
Last year, there were over 150 law enforcement agencies participating nationwide.
The purpose of this collaborative effort is to raise awareness about the problem of family and domestic violence in our communities. It also demonstrates to offenders that they will be held accountable for their violence with the hope of increasing the victim's safety.
Three members of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office Warrant Unit participated with the following results:
* 1 criminal summons served-domestic violence-assault.
* 1 violation of probation warrant served-the subject violated his probation by harassing his female partner. His original charge was 2nd degree murder.
* 3 child support warrants were served.
